Recommended Posts

a bill has been drafted for presentation to the USA House of Representatives

is call the TLDR Act and is aimed at Terms of Service documents

TLDR will require all Terms of Service documents to have a Summary on the first page, and that significant terms that impact the users must be referenced in the summary

sounds like a good plan to me

draft of bill here: https://trahan.house.gov/uploadedfiles/tldr_act.pdf

We need a TLDR bill that requires bills to have a FULL ACCURATE Summary.

weeelll they do already mostly. Like the TLDR summary is:

"A BILL To require the Federal Trade Commission to issue a short-form terms of service summary statement, and for other purposes."

Yeah, but most bills' summaries are pages long and filled with legalese.

Owning your first born's limbs is a competitive advantage few US corps will be willing to give up, especially after they went to all the trouble of hiding it a couple of hundred pages into an impenetrable legalese document (that would take weeks to unpick if ever challenged and you're expected to agree to it in the moment).

At the end of day in the Senate; there is no way this will get any republican votes (because nothing does), Manchin & Sinema wont touch it, so ... unless it's strapped to a few billion dollars worth of innovative ways to industrially murder people far far away, I'm not expecting this or anything like it to make it into final law. 

Now I have to wonder, given as this bill is going to attract an insane amount of lobbying money, doesn't everyone have to at least pretend it has a fighting chance?
